Click on the button 'I Agree to these terms' below :

In addition to the rules previously posted by the webhost/writers of this forum software the following rules must be agreed to before registration can be completed:
This forum is sponsored and presented by
The Ultimate Fibromyalgia Resource Center Website,  (TUFRC) which is privately owned and is non-profit.  TUFRC reserves the right to approve, deny or revoke registration to this forum for any reason. 
This forum is topic driven, meaning that it is a forum dedicated to Fibromyalgia and related chronic pain illnesses.  Any information posted by members must be topic related.  Posts will be monitored and non-topic related material will be removed.  If a member continues to post unrelated material, he/she will be permanently banned.
This is not an FFA for advertising your website.  If you are here simply to advertise please go somewhere else.  There are thousands of FFA's on the web for that purpose.  Unrelated URL information will be removed and the member banned.  Websites and URL's may be posted as long as they are topic driven and the posts made in the appropriate and related category.  (Not in your "Introduction", but rather the "FM Resources" Category.)  I definetely welcome the transfer of any FM related information; that is why we are here!  If you would like to tell other members of an FM site or resource that you know of that may be helpful to them, please do so in the appropriate category, writing your post as if you were talking to a friend, not in the form of an advertisement.  The members here are here to support each other, including YOU, so please do not take advantage of them by advertising to them.
This is not a "suicide helpline".  If you are suicidal please dial 911 or go to the nearest ER.  Although I empathize with being in pain, I am not qualified to help a suicidal person and will not be held responsible for those who are. 
Members, please do not assume authority over your fellow forum members.  If you see a post that seems inappropriate please notify admin but do not take any other action.  People sometimes make mistakes and need guidance; however, that is what moderators and admin are for.  Please don't offend anyone by trying to be the forum's "Miss/Mr. Know it all".
This is an open forum for the exchange of information.  Views posted here do not necessarily reflect those of TUFRC; therefore TUFRC is not responsible for the accuracy of posted information.
Basically that is it.  Treat others with respect.  Please offer compassion and empathy to your fellow forum members because we are all hurting or we wouldn't be here. 
I am really glad you are here so enough of this rule nonsense...
Welcome to the forum!
